The Bolt® Tank Base is a replacement part for the Bolt® Mini Gel Tank. It holds the Gel Runner Tank.

The Bolt® Mini Gel Tank is compatible with Bolt® Bis-Tris Plus gels, and can accommodate up to two gels per run. The unique tank design enables convenient side-by-side gel loading and enhanced viewing during use. Optimized conditions using constant voltage allow for Bolt® Bis-Tris Plus gels to be run in approximately 35 minutes. Run times may vary depending on buffer conditions and power supplies being used.

About Bolt® Bis-Tris Plus Gels
Bolt® Bis-Tris Plus gels are precast polyacrylamide gels designed for optimal separation of your small- to medium-sized proteins under denaturing conditions. Similar to NuPAGE® Bis-Tris gels, Bolt® Bis-Tris Plus gels are designed to deliver consistent gel performance and provide a neutral pH environment that minimizes protein modifications. Bolt® gels are ideal for western blot transfer and analysis, and any other techniques where protein integrity is crucial. Also use Bolt® gels to obtain optimal results for your day-to-day protein separation needs. Bolt® Bis-Tris Plus gels come in four gel types and multiple well formats. A Bolt® Mini Gel Tank is required for use of all Bolt® gels.
